Fresh off a GRAMMY® win for “Record of the Year,”

Lizzo – Special Ft SZA


Fresh off a GRAMMY® win for “Record of the Year,” the 4x GRAMMY® Award and Emmy award winning, RIAA multi-platinum certified superstar Lizzo has teamed up with her close friend, the genre-defying multi-Platinum SZA, for the stunning “Special (Feat. SZA)” available now via DSPs and streaming services HERE. The fan-favorite duo gave the highly-anticipated track its live debut during Lizzo’s sold-out LA Kia Forum show – currently available for streaming on HBO’s Lizzo: Live In Concert. An empowering song with sentimental importance to Lizzo herself and named by SZA as her personal favorite song on Lizzo’sSPECIAL album, the collab delivers unabashed positivity.

The official release of “Special (feat. SZA)” follows another monumental GRAMMYs night for Lizzo where she celebrated a “Record of the Year” win for her Billboard Hot 100 #1 worldwide smash “About Damn Time,” after performing a mashup of “About Damn Time” and “Special”. With the win, Lizzo becomes the first black woman to be awarded “Record of the Year” since Whitney Houston’s win for “I Will Always Love You” in 1994. Met with widespread critical applause for her performance, acceptance speech, and fashion alike, USA Today perfectly summarizes “Lizzo continually brings first-rate showmanship to awards show performances, and Sunday’s Grammys presentation was no exception.” “The pop star proved that her mic was on with a beautiful rendition of her empowering title track from her chart-topping album ‘Special,’” writes Harper’s Bazaar.

The heartwarming “Special” music video is also streaming via YouTube HERE. Directed by award-winning cinematographer Christian Breslauer (Doja Cat, The Weeknd, SZA), the wholesome and uplifting visual highlights Lizzo’s natural superhero energy.

Lizzo closed out 2022 with high-profile appearances on NBC’s SNL, Day Drinking With Seth Meyers, and CBS Sunday Morning. Lizzo is already making for a packed 2023 with further nominations for four NAACP Image Awards, and a GLAAD Media Award nomination for her #1 Amazon Prime competition program Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls. After wrapping part 1 of the sold-out The Special Tour at two LA Kia Forum shows, Lizzo will embark on the European leg beginning February 17th in Norway, and the second North American leg beginning April 21st in Knoxville, TN along with headlining festivals including New York City’s Governors Ball Music Festival.
